This is a brand new original Useful Machine Shop Tools to Make for Home Shop Machinists. This book is part of our Workshop Machinists Series that we started carrying, because we found them helpful in our shop. We have the entire collection in our library and found that many of our customers found them useful too.
Instead of throwing odds and ends of bar and rod into the scrap box, why not turn them into useful tools to simplify and speed up future work? Make your home machine shop more versatile and efficient by creating your own dependable tools for marking-out, benchwork, and machining. In this book, model engineering expert Stan Bray provides complete plans for making 15 simple but useful additions to your workshop equipment. Each of these tools takes no more than 3-4 hours to make, and requires no special materials. Fully dimensioned drawings, detailed instructions, and reference photographs accompany each project. This practical collection covers benchwork, the lathe, and milling operations. It includes: marking-out and machining aids; a simple motorized filing machine; an unusual and improved milling vice; a micrometer stand; internal and external chuck stops; cross drilling jigs; a hand turning rest; rear mounted toolposts; and a self-releasing mandrel handle
